The Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry

Apr 10, 2013

04/10/13 - Wednesday Topical Currents goes behind the scenes of the individual finance industry, with journalist Helaine Olen.   She’s written POUND FOOLISH:  Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry.  Most well-known TV and radio experts sell dreams that are seldom reached.  Many of them promote a theory that disciplined investments can make us rich.  But that notion relies on a healthy market and no life setbacks.  Some touts have strong industry ties which taint their message.  That’s Topical Currents . . . Wednesday's at 1pm on WLRN-HD1, rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live show.
